  1. PELAGIC REPORT: AUG 31 MTY & SCZ LINK
    DATE: Sep 5, 2018 @ 4:50pm, 2 month(s) ago
    Hello, CalBirders,
    
    Shearwater Journeys had a good pelagic trip on August 31, 2019 departing from Monterey. We just beat the high seas and northwest winds that plagued the weekend. A large concentration of shearwaters and humpback whales were feeding off Point Pinos. The sea surface temperature hovered around the 61 F mark throughout the day. Highlights included: PELAGIC RED CRABS ( Pleuroncodes planipes ) along Cannery Row which murres and gulls were feeding on; 2 BLACK-VENTED SHEARWATERS and a SHORT-TAILED SHEARWATER spotted by leader, Alex Rinkert and nicely photographed by leader, Christian Schwarz. Two BLUE WHALES gave some nice views.
